STIHL HSE 42 Electric Hedge Trimmer

The STIHL HSE 42 electric hedge trimmer is ideal for private users and can be used for trimming and cutting twigs and thin branches, and for maintaining shrubs, box bushes and small hedges outside the house. Weighing just 3 kg, the HSE 42 electric hedge trimmer ensures quiet, low-vibration operation. Thanks to the two-handed control, you can operate the STIHL HSE 42 conveniently and easily by simultaneously pressing the switches on the loop handle and the rear handle to start it. This also means that you can operate the hedge trimmer comfortably whether you are right- or left-handed. The single-sided cutting blades allow for a clean cut. The screw-on tip protector protects the cutting blades when working close to the ground as well as near walls and other obstacles.

Integrated cut protection and a small hand guard help to ensure your safety when working with the hedge trimmer. In addition, the mechanical blade brake ensures that the cutting blades are reliably stopped in less than one second after switching off the HSE 42 electric hedge trimmer. The integrated cable strain relief function prevents the plug from being disconnected if you pull the power cable while using the STIHL HSE 42.

You can use the optional STIHL catcher plate to collect cuttings directly on the blade of your STIHL HSE 42.

The STIHL HSE 42 electric hedge trimmer has a bar length of 45 cm.
